The commission files two cases with the anti-graft watchdog's Integrated District Office 1 in Dhaka 

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed two separate cases against Geneva camp-based listed drug dealer Md Ishtiaq and his wife, Pakhi, on charges of amassing illegal wealth and not submitting their wealth statement.

“ACC Assistant Director Saiduzzaman filed the cases with the anti-graft watchdog's Integrated District Office 1 in Dhaka on Monday,” ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told Dhaka Tribune.

The commission filed the cases against them under Section 26 (2) of the ACC Act 2004.

According to the case statement, Ishtiaq and his wife accumulated Tk2,802,000, built two six- and seven-storey buildings, and purchased 12 decimals of land in Ashulia -- which all are beyond their valid income source. 

They have not submitted their wealth statement either to the commission in compliance with the ACC order, it said.

Earlier on July 23, ACC had issued a letter to Ishtiaq and his wife seeking their wealth statement.

According to ACC sources, Ishtiaq is a transport businessman though he runs illegal drug trading. 

A listed criminal, Ishtiaq has 15 cases, including murder, filed against him with Mohammadpur police station, they said.
